What is there to say about the Victoria & Albert Museum, the world's largest museum of design and decorative arts, which hasn't already been said by historians, artists, and the public since its opening in 1852? It's a breathtaking triumph of curation and culture, and with free Friday Lates (bringing in DJs and bartenders for late-night entertainment on the last Friday of each month) it has kept far away from the ever-present danger of gallery-stuffiness. In 2015 the V&A housed 'Disobedient Objects', a gut-wrenching display of the shed objects and artifacts of protest movements in the last century. The V&A has come a long was since its eponymously Victorian past, and free entry to its permanent collections makes it truly unmissable.
